Michael Van Buskirk, at the time this booklet was published in 1976, was Director of Christian Apologetics: Research and Information Service. This booklet is a chapter from his 1975 book, 'The Sandcastle of Jehovah's Witnesses.'

He writes in the introductory paragraph, "In its many publications (the Watchtower Society) constantly quotes authorities on various subjects in support of whatever subject is being discussed. Often the Watchtower refers to its earlier publications in an effort to convey consistency. The purpose of this study is not to examine the validity of any certain doctrine, but to determine if statements utilized by the Society are in harmony with what the quoted authors contextually intended."

The Watchtower Society stands guilty and without excuse." (Pg. 14)
"The New World Translaton renders John 8:58, 'Before Abraham came into existence, I have been.' In the 1950 edition there appears a footnote ... '...in the perfect indefinite tense...' Since then it has been brought to the 'Society's' attention that there is no perfect indefinite tense in the Greek language." (Pg. 17)
"As stated earlier, Pastor (Charles) Russell was considered to be the 'faithful and wise servant.

I read the syllabus that became the making of this book. Absolutely the best documentation, and clear reasoning to the importance of the divinity of Christ, and the deception by the Watchtower Bible and tract Society of the person, nature and work of Jesus Christ.
